The Chicagoland MOPAR Connection is one of the largest regional collector car clubs in the country!
The goals of CMC are to:
- Provide events and activities that enhance the ownership, enjoyment and appreciation of our vehicles.
- Promote camaraderie within the collector car community.
- Support and engage in charitable activities that benefit the community as a whole.
- While we are justifiably proud of our events, we also recognize that one of the best parts of membership is the friendships that develop through participating in club activities.
CMC has a very active year round CALENDAR OF EVENTS. The year begins with our annual chapter Holiday parties held early in the year. These events close the previous year and begin the new year. Traditionally, we make our major charitable donations and decisions at these events. In February we hold our annual indoor swap meet at The Garage at Bettenhausen in Tinley Park. We hold our first car show of the season in early June in Downers Grove, IL. Then, the Sunday after Fathers Day, we have our show in Fox Lake, IL. The next major event is the two-day event in July at the beautiful Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, IL. Our final event is the show and swap in August in Dubuque, IA. Other shows and activities can happen on a more spontaneous basis. For example, in the past we had an informal meeting with Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson. Throughout the year other local cruises and non CMC shows take place and many members actively participate in these events. Watch the CMC member’s newsletter, Facebook “Chicagoland Mopar Connection”, and our website for dates and further information on both CMC and non CMC events.
Over the years we have expanded our membership base to include a large portion of Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Eastern Iowa. To continue to provide the best service to members we have established chapters in: Rockford, IL – Rock Valley chapter, Dubuque, IA – Willowa chapter, Lake County, IL – Fox River chapter, and the rest of the Chicagoland Area – CAM chapter.
There are no prerequisites for membership in CMC other than an interest in Chrysler manufactured vehicles. The annual dues are $25.00. Benefits of membership include a monthly newsletter, The Birds and the Bees, free personal want ads in the newsletter, discounted event fees and other special offers to members. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, we would be pleased to have you join us, just print out the membership application and become part of the best Mopar club around.
